1. I met new people who had interesting things to say about the process.
2. New plot twists appeared unbidden as did a new character. This happened naturally without even dipping into the many and varied challenges that are available at a write in.
3. The numbers on the word count increased dramatically.
4. They gave me presents.
Take a look at these presents:
Plot ninja – for new plots and Skull and cross bones eraser – a reminder not to erase
Emergency plot elements and Emergency new character – just open and add water
NANOWRIMO pocket guide
NANOWRIMO sticker and teabag – for relaxation and to keep me awake!
Is it worth the time to go to a write in or would it make more sense to stay home, use the travel time to write and concentrate without interruptions? I will definitely attend another write in. The inspiration and companionship is well worth the time traded.
